I agree, Its faster and easier/better to just read the tables and look at the pictures. Some simple text above/below the pictures like PS4 (49%), WiiU (25%) is enough. I appreciate the work done to create those pictures/graphs, but the text is a pain to read as it adds nothing to the simple facts like percentage of market, increase/drop in software sales etc. Please don't take this the wrong way. I love to see such numbers/information, but not in this form. Sorry.

Really, you're keeping PS4 & Vita Pink? Can't you make them orange?


leyendax69 (on 13 February 2014)

I didn't expect that gap for Tomb Raider DE in favor of ps4.


FujiokaMidori (on 13 February 2014)

Really?... Makes perfect sense to me when the other option is on a higher price system that runs the game @ 30fps

Are these WSA articles generated by a macro? They are extremely dry and I don't see any analysis per se, just raw numbers.
